Small museum primarily highlighting Croatian more rustic art. Very interesting in US comparison more in the Grandma Moses style. Only cost about $4 and nice air-conditioned spot in Uptown.

Great museum but the number of exhibits is small. Some of the images gifted abilities in reproducing the harsh peasant life in winter. Tip:if walking, use the funicular from the square

It's a really small museum which is quite a shame. Especially considering all those gorgeous displays they had available. Folk artistic expression always struck me with awe... and this time was not different.
